Daily Angel Oracle Card: Book Of Destiny, from the Chronicles Of Destiny Fortune Card deck, by Josephine Ellershaw and Emily Ellershaw, artwork by Claudia McKinney
The Moral Of The Story Is: “Destiny is created when you actively pursue it. Whilst fate may present certain circumstances destiny unfolds once you move towards it. Action shapes destiny.”
Book Of Destiny: “The Seeker is surprised that the fabled book seems of quite ordinary and unremarkable appearance, with no elaborate cover to imply the magical secrets that it holds. They catch their breath when they find that the bookplate contains a simple inscription bearing their name and, as they delve into the pages, they find the story of their life, penned in the familiar hand of the Guardian of the Books. The chronicles of their great adventure unfurl upon the written page, and as the Seeker reads, they become enlightened to the mystery the Book Of Destiny holds and the final words they find written there, “Destiny is created when you actively pursue it.”
Card definition: “When you take meaningful action in the direction of your dreams, it sets off a chain of synchronistic events, sometimes considered as meaningful coincidences. As the Seeker’s journey demonstrates, some doors open and others close, helpful allies mysteriously appear, whilst challengers test resolve, casting light and shadows on areas to strengthen or abandon.
There is a special connection between this card and Dreams, Weaver of Worlds, and Resolve, since their meanings contain the sequence of actions shaped by the Seeker and echo the secret found within the Book of Destiny. If these four cards all appear in a reading together, they are most auspicious, since they form the practical basis for achieving success through the combined effort of thought, desire, and taking action.
When the Book Of Destiny card appears in your reading, it is the reminder that you write your own book of life. Whilst fate may present certain circumstances, destiny is created and shaped when you actively pursue it.”*

We really come into our power when we realize that we are the ones who shape our reality. We are not the victims of circumstance, we have challenges yes, but we also have the tools, resources and skills to manage them. We are capable, we are strong and we are courageous. We get to be the hero or heroine of our own story. We get to write our own book of life.
What is written in your book of life to date? Is it an exciting story, a sad story, an uplifting and inspiring story? Where have you learned your lessons? Where have you walked away and started all over again? Where have you loved and lost, and where have you had the courage to love again?
Now turn the page in your book of life and see that just one day in the future, tomorrow, the page is blank. What will be written on that next page? What will be written in ten pages, twenty or one hundred? How will each chapter shift and change, how colourful and beautiful could it be… will it be? Take a few moments and imagine the next few chapters in your book of life. Imagine the illustrations, vibrantly jumping off the pages. What do you see there?
What will you create?
What is your destiny?
